Thomson Snell & Passmore appoints new Court of Protection Partner

Law firm Thomson Snell & Passmore has welcomed Claire Busuttil as a Partner to its well respected Court of Protection team.

Claire joins from Mayo Wynne Baxter, where she trained and has spent the last 19 years. She has extensive experience in advising on Court of Protection applications including Deputyship, Statutory Wills and lifetime gifting applications for individuals who do not have the capacity to manage their own financial and property affairs and make independent decisions. She has significant personal experience of acting as a professional Deputy for a large number of clients.

She also has specific expertise in supporting clients following medical negligence and personal injury settlements.

Claire takes a multidisciplinary approach, often engaging other professionals in the social work and healthcare sectors to enhance her clients’ lives and provide the highest level of service in a cost effective way.

Her appointment will further strengthen the firm’s Court of Protection team, which is already well known nationally for its expertise in property and financial affairs cases, especially high value catastrophic injury claims. Through its Trust Corporation and Partners, Thomson Snell & Passmore currently acts as deputy in over 230 cases with an estimated value of over £300 million in assets.

Commenting on her appointment, Claire Busuttil says: “I have spent my career doing all I can to help support some of the most vulnerable people in society. It is a real joy to be involved in my clients’ lives and build long lasting relationships with them. I am delighted to be joining a firm that not only shares my ethos, but is also so well respected in the industry.”

Brian Bacon, Head of Court of Protection at Thomson Snell & Passmore, adds: “It is wonderful to welcome Claire to the team. Her extensive experience and skill will further augment the excellent service and support we offer to our clients and their families.”
